    Tied with Eastern Condors as his best films as a director. A timely classic.

  2. nrh's rating of the film The Prodigal Son

    typically confident hung mixture of slapstick comedy, savage violence, and occasional melancholy lyricism, here aided a fascinating peking opera backdrop and a winding, eccentric path through the narrative. as always the action scenes are note perfect - witty and surprising, with real weight and power when needed, the final confrontation in particular being a masterpiece of its kind.
